What a wonderful news: Alice through the looking glass the sequel of Alice in Wonderland adds Rhys Ifans as the Mad Hatter’s Dad, in the cast of the movie. The movie, Disney is more than sure of it, will be released for sure May 27, 2016.

No fear for the story of the age difference because both Johnny than Rhys will be covered by a very heavy make-up and prosthetics.


Rhys Ifans: who can’t remember this actor in Spike’s role in the romantic comedy Notting Hill?




The story of a famous actress, (Julia Roberts, in the role of Anna Scott) with Hugh Grant, in the main role of a man owning a travel book store located in London and precisely in the fascinating Notting Hill. Image


His life is normal, with a special friend with which Hugh shared his house, Spike. Everything will change when Hugh will  meet along his way (in his store the first time) Imageactress Anna Scott.

Remarkable movie, the role by Rhys the funniest one.

Apart Johnny Depp, it was confirmed in Alice’s role Mia Wasikowska Image,Sacha Baron Cohen Imagewill play the role of TIME a great villain for sure, Helena Bonham Carter Imagewill be back in the role of the Red Queen.


The film is directed by James Bobin Image. This director is promising incredible surprises and a different movie respect to the first one, directed by Tim Burton.


Bobin will create another atmosphere in comparison to the book written by Lewis CarrollImage.


It will be a different Alice Through the Looking Glass Image, with a lot of history, Victorian touch, originality.

Bobin promised the viewers will live a dreaming adventure.  I can’t wait!

Johnny will be the next…Houdini?

Johnny Depp negotiating for the role of Houdini in Lionsgate Film


Hollywood Reporter reported as an exclusive that Johnny Depp will perform maybe the role of Houdini in a new production.

Another book and another inspiration. Johnny Depp thinks that the story of Houdini is interesting and misterious. Maybe the biggest magician still known on Earth, he is an icon for all the people wants to start the profession of magician.

The book Johnny read convincing him of the particularity of the topic was: The Secret Life of Houdini: The Making of America’s First Superhero

Image by William Kalush and  Larry Sloman.

The story will be adventurous and Houdini won’t be just “read” as a great magician but as an investigator of the Occultism. And let’s say that it is pretty normal in magicians to trying to discover also the other side of the world, the unknown one.


Image  loves the occult as well so there will be more than a connection between these two stunning men.

Welcome back, Johnny/Houdini.

Johnny weeks ago celebrated the glory of one of the most loved American’s comic men


Johnny Depp

Image on may 6th partecipated at an event for the recording of a comedy tribute to Don Rickles ImageImage at the Apollo Theater in New York.





Many important guests, let’s remember Martin Scorsese,  



David Letterman, Jerry Seinfeld, Robert De Niro, Regis Philbin, Tracy Morgan, Brian Williams and Jon Stewart.


Johnny told to the audience the first time he met Rickles he was expecting an insult. No one. A bad signal to Johnny. “It meant to me at the time that he clearly hated me” added Johnny.

Rickles family was jewish and the particularity was that they spoke Yiddish at home.

After the Second World War studied at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts.

It was a hard work the one of the actor and not receiving great payments Rickels started to doing stand-up comedy performing mainly in hotels.

He became famous for being an insult comedian. He was so nice doing it that the public went crazy for him and so Don added to the various sketches insults as well everytime.

Who realistically helped a lot Rickels was Frank Sinatra. He simply fell in love for his acting and for the insults. He asked to other known people of supporting him.

Maybe he is right Rickles when once said, “I always pictured myself facing the audience as the matador”.

In 1959 the first movie with Clark Gable and Burt Lancaster “Run Silent, Run Deep”.

Television is his great love. In the ’60’s appeared on tv in sit-coms and dramatic series.

Our Early Days……

Posted in Uncategorized by Anna Maria Polidori on May 27, 2014

Johnny & Paul while filming Early Days

These days has been released a new music video for the song “Early Days” written by Paul McCartney. Johnny took part at the project with Paul McCartney. It’s not the first time that Johnny participate at some McCartney musical events. These ones are some of the beautiful, stunning pictures taken from the filming.


Thanks to Lory Depp Girl for these three first pictures





“Early Days”

They can’t take it from me, if they tried
I lived through those early days
So many times I had to change the pain to laughter
Just to keep from getting crazed

Dressed in black from head to toe
Two guitars across our backs
We would walk the city roads
Seeking someone who would listen to the music
That we were writing down at home.

But they can’t take it from me, if they tried
I lived through does early days
So many times I had to change the pain to laughter
Just to keep from getting crazy

Hair slicked back with vaseline
Like the pictures on the wall of the local record shop
Hearing noises we were destined to remember
We will the thrill to never stop

May sweet memories of friends from the past
Always comes to you, when you look for them
And your inspiration long may it last
May it come to you time and time again

Now everybody seems to have their own opinion
Of Who did this and who did that
But as for me I don’t see how they can remember
When they weren’t where it was at

They can’t take it from me, if they tried
I lived through those early days
So many times I had to change the pain to laughter
Just to keep from getting crazy

I lived through those early days
I lived through those early days

Whitey Bulger and his Season of Terror

Posted in Uncategorized by Anna Maria Polidori on May 20, 2014

Bulger, South Boston, the trial. Short story of a “legendary” mafioso




I thought days ago that it would have been more than appropriate trying to focus the attention on the character of Whitey Bulger, a mafioso still alive and in prison 


for the rest of his days, after a trial concluded very recently, just the past year.


Death penalty instituted in 1620 has been declared unconstitutional in 1982 in the State of Massachusetts. 




Johnny  is filming Black Mass  Imageand he plays this role so let’s try to discover who was this mafioso.


Of course people and residents of South Boston ( Massachusetts) can tell to you very well that no one is regretting the fact he is in jail because this man terrorized in the real sense of the word  South Boston. You can surf every possible site magazine read  articles and then scrolling down the comments, you will read just a lot of positive considerations about the end in jail of Bulger although people add problems are persisting and criminality is not yet defeated but a new one is emerging. Problems are still existing and in a big city, it’s normal maybe, but let’s say that people of Boston live this phase as: “A legend and a season of Terror is over. Good”.


Looking at the pics of the past, the criminal story and activity of Bulger started pretty soon.


 His final and definitive capture



has been defined as the “capture of a legend”. In a way the story of this man de facto was and still is legendary in the worst sense of the word. There are positive legendary people and negative legendary people who have marked this Old World.

The verdict is very recent and at the moment Bulger born in 1929 is an old man. He was lucky enough when in the 90′s a corrupt agent of the FBI (Federal Bureau of Investigation) told him that maybe it was better if he would have gone away… A long vacation maybe. Yes well the air in fact was not good for him and it seemed that he would have been indicted.

Bulger didn’t let him repeat the words twice and left Boston immediately…for good.

The role of the F.B.I. is interesting and quiet peculiar: in a way once he disappeared he was searched by them as well but it seems that the F.B.I. has been involved in many of his crimes.

It seems that in fact the F.B.I. participated actively in the murders of government witnesses or at least they blessed these criminal episodes.

To the city of Boston this one has been the worst episode of corruption in the entire history of the F.B.I.


He is not a tall man, but pretty small, over-weight, with an angel face (if you don’t look at his eyes), mainly the legendary boss of this very well structured organized criminality, able to build a structure who was in grade of killing and ruining tons of people. Not only: he was able to corrupt the F.B.I. it seems.

It’s impressive the respect anyway paid to this man. In the articles I read journalists talk of him still as Mr.Bulger.

The power he had to have in the city of Boston  I guess was immense. 

Away from 16 years, he was found in 2011, can you imagine where? Not in a secluded place, not in a desert island, not in a foreign place and not found thanks to the help of the Interpol. No no no: forget a complicated crime story. He was in fact discovered in one of the sunniest and most exclusive and opened and populated Californian’s cities: Santa Monica.

In his house the police men found something like an arsenal of weapons and 822.000 dollars. Cash.

The trial focused on various topics.

Drugs: Bulger had imported something like 36 tons of marijuana. The dilapidated waterfront where it happened all of it, it is living a new life.

The old South Boston Imageknown and lived and wanted maybe by the same Bulger as a clerical part of the city mainly populated by Irish-American now it is becoming an active part of a city in a continuous economic boom.

People don’t feel any kind of nostalgia for that old days. Old people are still remembering the moments lived during the 70′s and 80′s and without any regret they are very happy for the conclusion of this story. For the peace of all the community.

People think that it’s good they got Bulger alive. “He had to pay for it” they add.

The jury at the trial was composed by eight men and four women and Bulger was accused by 32 counts and found guilty of 31 counts of his indictment. The only one he resulted to be innocent of was an extortion charge.

The jury reached the verdict of “no finding” in the assassination of Debra Davis. There were in fact two case in which Bugler was accused of having strangled two women. In this first case the jury couldn’t express an opinion.

Bugler has always said that he had a personal  honor code and he wouldn’t never strangled or killed a woman.


The jury at least thought the opposite accusing him of having killed Deborah Hussey.  Image

Let’s try to understand who this woman was. Stephen Flemmi seemed to be Bulger’s partner in various crimes. One of his girlfriends was Ms.Davis. She testified against him at the trial.The girl killed was the daughter of another Flemmi’s previous girlfriend.

Bulger’s behavior in the courtroom.

Bulger had a yellow legal pad where he wrote most of the time. He was aggressive with a lot of witnesses who testified against him. He said bad words and obscenities to them and the courtroom didn’t appear anymore a place of legality but a chaotic room where order had to being re-established continuously when these episodes took place.

The last trial tried to focus more on Bulger’s criminal facts happened while he was protected by the F.B.I.
